Since Spring practice began, Coach Sark has been evaluating players to find the best fit within the new schemes, and has also been making alterations to improve depth in key areas. With Luther Leonard now at receiver and working with the kickoff return team, and with Senio Kelemete now on the offensive line rather than the d-line, some of the position changes seem to be working out for the best. On Monday it was learned that Alvin Logan, who played signifcantly at wide receiver last year, has moved to safety…..a transition that will likely work out well to increase the depth in the secondary. The Tacoma News Tribune’s Blog gives a few more details of why they made the switch now. The Go Huskies Blog also does a thorough job of providing notes from practice….and they also put together a catchy Spring Football Teaser.
Along with the position changes that are evolving at practice, many are excited to see how the new offense will progress. As Bob Condotta reports in his latest practice notes installment, Coach Sarkisian is feeling good about his quarterback’s improvement throughout Spring Camp.
“It’s hard to put a gauge on exactly where you think a guy would be,” Coach Sark said of Locker. “I know this, from the midpoint of spring – practice 7, practice 8 – until now, practice 12, I know he has thrown quite a bit. He’s comfort level with the terminology, his comfort level with his progression, his comfort level when things are there to pull the ball down and run and finding that fine line there, his accuracy has gotten better. I just think his overall game has improved.”
